This is one of my latest finds during my stay in Roppongi Hills in Tokyo. I can’t read Japanese, but I walked into AM/PM in the wee hours of the morning, looking for a treat. I always love trying new foods/snacks, so I reached for this cute pouch of what appeared to be fruit balls (insert joke here). To my surprise, these tiny balls were packed with fruit flavor! It’s final, they are #2 place, as my #1 place winner still goes to Haagen Daaz Crisp Sandwich (green tea).
Ever since I was a lil girl, there was always a certain level of fascination, when I stood in front of a vending machine trying to figure out my purchase. Today as an adult, you can still find me glued to the vending machines, except, the new modern version features fun & kitschy items.
I spotted this one @ The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. You can get everything from Lady Gaga rhinestone encrusted ear bugs, fashion tape, gourmet chocolate, jewelry, and even eyelashes. Although, you can find better quality, selection, & prices for falsie lashes just around the corner at Skins 6/2 Cosmetics.
I’ve traveled the world and simply adore the hot/cold drink vending machines in Tokyo. They even carry small selection of hot soups.
My 2nd runner up would be Bam! in NYC. They feature hot foods such as grilled cheese, sandwiches, and mozzarella sticks.
2010 was a fantastic year, filled with unforgettable memories. My husband and I, kicked off the year by spending a couple of weeks in pure sunshine and tropical weather. We managed to run out businesses remotely, but still had plenty of time to relax.
With pure white sand beach, green foliage, hiking paths, and crystal clear waters, Tachai Island ranks among one of the hottest new places to visit in Thailand. This serene and picturesque beach is a rare gem that has not been flooded with visitors like the Similan Islands.
You’ll have plenty of uninterrupted R&R time to sunbathe, snorkel, hike, or just float around in the ocean. You can get to Tachai Islands by speed boat, which takes 1 hr and 20 minutes each way. Trust me, it is well worth the time.
After a 1 year hiatus, JP & I managed to come back home for a visit to S’pore. Not much has changed since our last visit. High rise buildings and modern shopping plazas are still under construction in and around Orchard Road, but some things remain constant, and that’s the huge selection of delectable food & treats.
Do enjoy my photo diary of this long overdue trip back home. I’ll be posting additional photos each day.
Now here comes the food & shopping!
Back in Aug 2010, I had the chance to visit the beautiful island of Ibiza. During our stay, I had a chance to go to Privilege to see DJ Tiesto. Then in November of 2010, I ran into DJ Tiesto in Las Vegas! He was so sweet and agreed to take a photo with me. =)
Here’s one of my favorite songs & video clips from DJ Tiesto.
